Forward email from mail enabled Public folder to a distribution list

Hello
I'm running Exchange 2013 och Windows Server 2012 and have a mail enabled public folder that i want to forward to a distribution group.

I have created the distribution Group in the /ecp but when i select the mail enabled public folder and check the forward to under delivery options, I can only select user mailboxes not the distribution groups?

The distribution group is global etc..

Sorry i mean that the distribution group is universal. And its no problem for me to do it on Exchange 2010, 2007 or 2003.

But how do you solve it in Exchange 2013? I just see the mailboxes not the dist grpĀ“s

Its no problem to create a new distribution group.

- Is there any good way to forward a mail-enabled pf to a dist grp?
Like you did in Exchange 2010, 2007 or 2003?

Hi Waleij,

Instead of using GUI to add forwarding address to Distribution group, do it via PowerShell. Here is the command to get it done.

Note:
Replace text User Name with the name of the Public folder on which you want to set forwarding.
Replace text distribution@abc.com with the email address on which you want to forward.  

Set-Mailbox -Identity "User Name" -ForwardingAddress "Distribution@abc.com"

Old one but.. here is the answar :) In Powershell

To Forward message sent to a public folder to a distribution group

Set-MailPublicFolder -Identity publicfolderemail@domain.com -ForwardingAddress distributiongrp@domain.com

Deliver to public folder and forward
Set-MailPublicFolder -Identity publicfolderemail@domain.com -DeliverToMailboxAndForward $true

To see status
Get-MailPublicFolder -Identity publicfolderemail@domain.com | FL

To see all Mail Public Folders
Get-MailPublicFolder | select DisplayName,ForwardingAddress,DeliverToMailboxAndForward

Note:
publicfolderemail@domain.com replace with public folder email address
distributiongrp@domain.com replace with distribution group email address
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is also working for Office 365
